The winter sports are one fewer this week, as wrestling held its team championship meet over the weekend. Basketball enters the final full week of the regular season, while swimming concludes on Tuesday and hockey is just about done. Monday’s games, and possibly others later in the week, could be affected by weather.

Girls

Basketball

Monday

Padua (8-7) at Concord (4-13), 3:30 p.m.

Worcester Prep at St. Thomas More (12-2), 4 p.m. St. Thomas More faces its first tough test of the week against ESIAC rival Worcester Prep. The Mallards enter this game at 13-2, with one of those losses coming to St. Thomas More on Jan. 18. Olivia Lynch scored 25 in the first game for the Ravens. This could be a preview of the conference championship game, which will be played on Feb. 21.

St. Elizabeth at Conrad (12-5), 6:45 p.m. Two of the state’s best teams renew acquaintances in a prime-time showcase. Last season, the Vikings defeated Conrad in a thrilling regular-season matchup, but the Red Wolves got revenge in the quarterfinals of the state tournament. Juniors Ber’Nyah Ward-Mayo of St. Elizabeth and Conrad’s Julie Kulesza are just two of the top-tier players who will appear in this game. Expect a sold-out and raucous Wolves Den for this one.

Salesianum (10-6) at Mount Pleasant (13-4), 5:30 p.m. The Sals and Green Knights have played some close games in recent years, and there’s no reason to expect anything different this time out. Mount, featuring former Sallies guard Fah’Mir Ali and Yshaad Butcher, is having another fine season with few seniors, but the Green Knights are smarting from two consecutive losses. The Sals, meanwhile, are looking to bounce back from a loss after three straight wins.
